Battle of the “line” overrides

There are obviously a lot of graphic overrides in Revit. Just in regard to “line weights, line patterns and line colours” here is the ranks of what wins out the line overrides

  1. Line Work Tool
  2. Override graphics in view by elements
  3. Filters
  4. View Depth -Beyond system line type (plan views only)
  5. Phasing graphic overrides
  6. Advanced model graphics – silhouette edges.
  7. Visibility / Graphic overrides – Halftone
  8. Visibility / Graphic overrides – Override host layers (Cut line styles)
  9. Visibility / Graphic overrides - (projection & cut lines)
  10. Project object styles

Design options – to use the line work tool or override graphics in view by elements on items in design options, you must be in edit mode in the design option.
